Format: Paperback
Mr. Lazy lives in Sleepyland where everyone and everything is lazy. Even the trees do not stand tall! This book appears not to have a message. It is very different from many of the other Mr. Men books in the fact that the character, Mr. Lazy in this case, does NOT get cured of his bad habit. He is as lazy in the beginning as he is in the end.

HOWEVER I think children can understand the fact that being lazy is not a good thing and as they read this story they will see, through his dream, that his life could be much more productive if he was not lazy and the dream is not going away even though he has woken up from it once!

As a family, we love all the Mr. Men books including this one.

Good for the little ones. They are not wordy and too long, that is ridiculous. Children love them, from an age to an age, and some, including this one, are funny for adults. He hardly does anything, which keeps those lazy dads who loves to stay in their beds awake!

Easy to add to a collection, one of the first and also bests Mr Men books. Don't forget the library! See the numbers on the bottom at the side of the books, and some random black (or nothing sometimes) above it? That's where you should add it to a collection.

Read to your toddler, or watch them read themselves. The wording is great, and works a treat for the children who can read certain words and spark a wire in their brain which gives them a real picture of what happens it there and it's lovely to see them learn.

Roger Hargreaves has written a fantastic collection of wonderful `Mr. Men' and `Little Miss' books. This is the 17th book in it. If you have got all of the books in each set, then you can put them in order and something amazing will appear! I only have two books but hope to collect every book in each series.

Characters and Settings (and events)
The characters, settings and events in this book are not very interesting (that's how it is supposed to be). Below is a brief description of each.
Sleepyland - it is an area where everything looks very tired; the trees hang low and the birds sometimes fall out of the sky; the grass only needs cutting once a year and the there were only four hours in every slow day! It is very quiet and peaceful indeed!
Mr Lazy - he likes to sleep a lot; in fact, that is his favourite thing to do! He is pink and round and has breakfast when we would have tea! He would sleep for some time, a very long time: when he finally would wake up, it would be way past midday.
Mr Busy and Mr Bustle - these two men are, as their names say, always busy and bustling! They come to Mr Lazy, wake him up from his nap, and make him work really hard: cooking and cleaning floors, washing plates and polishing windows, making beds and clipping hedges, chopping wood and dusting furniture, etc.

Format: Paperback
Mr Lazy is another classic Mr Man book, loved by me as a kid (a few years ago now!) and loved by my kids, nieces and nephews since. All the Mr Men books have a moral; this one is obviously to not be lazy. The moral is delivered in a fun way and the characters are so great, simply drawn, bright and instantly recognisable, with obvious features that represent their name.....you can't help but love them!

For younger children, each story is just short enough to read to them at bedtime and not too long so it holds their interest. For older children, they can either read them to themselves or you can read them a few each bedtime.

My children are 3 and 7 and both love them.

Buy and enjoy, as a story with your children, or a nostalgic trip down memory lane!

These are lovely books for kids, but they don't have much rhythm in them as some other great kiddie books do, so kids tend to lose interest after a few pages. But the messages are great and they do remember them.
